Subscribe to Green Crafts
We’ve made no secret of our love of eco-friendly subscription services. Nothing like receiving a surprise in the mail every month, and even better if that surprise can help swap out some of our less-green products. We’ve highlighted Jessica Alba’s eco-friendly baby goods delivery service, and Eco-Emi’s, an eco-beauty subscription service. And now eco-craft kids are joining in on the trend. Welcome to Green Kid Crafts, a delivery service that sends your kid three new projects a month that are not only earth-friendly but also inspire kids with nature.
Past projects have included a train, a Japanese windsock, a train whistle, and a tambourine. All materials are included except for scissors and glue. Supplies are made from recycled materials whenever possible, and most projects are fully recyclable. Things like plastics and foams are avoided, meaning playtime is sure to be completely nontoxic. While most of these projects any creative parent could conjure up with materials around the house, it’s nice to have a monthly influx of inspiration when you’re short on time. Mostly, we just love something that keeps our kids engaged every month. Nothing beats getting a special present in the mail to raise awareness about protecting the planet.
Of course, you can incorporate earth-friendly ideas into craft time every day. Give your kids scrap paper to draw on or old magazines to make collages. What earth-friendly ideas do you incorporate into playtime?
